Lots of shops and restaurants as well as street vendors and tours to purchase, this is the place to purchase souvenirs. The stores run from tacky touristy to Tiffanys. Restaurants range from local to touristy or fast food to pubs, unfortunately nothing that we could find with an ocean view. Located in Bridgetown

If this were Atlantic City then this would be the boardwalk. I think it was a nice and definitely worth stopping in for a look if you're interested and maybe take a few photos for your memory.

Excellent food and variety of drinks. Live Jazz Ensemble performs on Thursday nights from approximately 7:30 pm. Plan to arrive early to get a good seat in the outside courtyard. If it rains, there is plenty of seating with tables inside the café. This facility compares well with other waterside cafes that I have visited in Copenhagen, Denmark and Stockholm,... More

It is always fun to see the bustle at a port. You'll be amazed at the size of some of the boats. There are places to eat nearby but I didn't go there because I thought they were overpriced.

The anchorage is peaceful and the area of old warehouses turned restaurants and shops is worth an afternoon's walk. It is a nice place to relax after touring downtown Bridgetown

Plenty of boat action but not much else, although there are a few bars and fast food stalls and the main shopping area is not far away

The Careenage is the bar at the Hilton. Kitchen closes at 10:00 PM and the variety is limited. Local talent night on Thursday somewhat interesting. A bit expensive for the food
